I plan on trying these this year as long as it continues to rain and we are stuck inside. Her directions are very easy and I think I can tackle this one!
I know this is cheesy, but we just had a long converstion at work about how bad our handwriting has gotten because we don’t write anything any more. It is all typed. I can’t tell you how much I LOVE to get a handwritten letter in the mail. It is so much more fun to read! When I look at my Grandmothers handwritting I am sad that I never took the time to make it as beautiful as hers, it really is an art.
I plan taking Friday night to write lvoe letters to my family, I want to do them on nice cards or paper, it might be cheesy and inexpensive but my time is worth more than anything else I have!
HERE is a good tutorial on how to write a Love Letter, or at least some ideas to get you started!

Back when cookies boquets were really popular, I made a few because I couldn’t bring my self to spend the $60 that they cost. I made mine for about $20 and they turned out beautiful!
I would like to make 2 this year, one for each of the older women, who are both widows, that live on either side of us. I will enlist the kids to help for sure they love this kind of thing. Wish me luck!
I personally liked this chocolate cookies recipe and they have good directions!
My girls and I made these last year for our neighbors. I happened to have everything on hand so they were a sinch. Even the little fingers of my 5 year old was able to do this one.
The directions are HERE.
Do you have any great food or craft ideas?

    My mother wrote me handwritin notes on my birthday growing up. I still have them and cherish them. She too had beautiful handwriting and they were always about how much she loved and admired me. She has a way with words I wish I had.
